I am busy reclaiming my home at the moment. My current house has been a family home for twelve years and is showing all the signs of wear and tear that can be expected when raising three children. A lot of shabby and very little chic! So I am decorating and re-vamping the living room with lots of Laura Ashley and ivory paint.
This means the mini world has had to go on hold, again, as I paint much bigger pieces of furniture than usual!
So I thought I would show you two commissions for Diagon Alley. This mother and daughter pair are by Jain Squires of Giddy Kipper. Both out shopping for Hogwarts supplies. They certainly have the Weasley clan look, maybe Percy's studious looking wife and daughter.
Jain's characters are always beautifully crafted and I love the Hoo-like bunches that are just what I asked for.
My father and son pair are easily recognisable, Malfoy and son still with their aristocratic air but maybe softer at the edges. The Malfoy's are the creation of Julie Campbell and I love everything about them.
The young wizard certainly looks very smart in his Hogwarts uniform while dad's natty waistcoat displays true a Malfoy's desire to stand out in a crowd.
Thank you Jain and Julie, they are wonderful additions to my project.
Now it is time for another layer of paint to be added to my new TV stand.....they are such ugly pieces of furniture aren't they. I am painting a new unit I bought for its shape and practicality in the hope it will blend into the background walls but it is a much longer job in 1:1!!
